The Fulbright UK Summer Institutes are three-to-four week programs for high-achieving US undergraduate students with at least two years left prior to graduation. Participants can explore the culture, heritage and history of the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) while experiencing higher education at a UK university.

The Institutes include an educational residency relevant to the host university's cultural, historical and industrial environment. 

Depending on the Institute, students will have the opportunity to:
  • Study alongside leading academics and professionals
  • Develop knowledge in specific fields
  • Participate in field and in-service education
  • Experience cultural and social events
  • Visit museums, galleries, castles, battlegrounds, stately homes and areas of scenic beauty
  • Receive credit to transfer to their home institution
  • Meet people from across the US and the world
  • Become an ambassador for studying in the UK
The majority of Institute costs are covered, including:
  • Return US-UK airfare
